THIS MONTH'S QUIZ QUESTIONS - ANSWERS TOMORROW

I am starting off with a mini ramble today.  Yesterday we received our first Covid-19 vaccination.  We expected to have a long wait looking at all the people we followed into the building, with many more making their way behind us.  However, there were 35 tables and not one spot empty.  Our long line moved steadily, we were separated the six feet thanks to the small round circles on the floor, and everyone wore a mask.  I was not looking forward to being in a crowd again after all this time but was quite comfortable with how they had organized us.  The young nurse was very warm and friendly and after asking us a few questions, hubs and I got our jabs.  We were out of the building in half an hour, and that included the 15 minutes waiting time to see if we had any reaction.  We could hardly feel the injection, the needle was so small.  Hubs did not have any soreness in his arm afterwards, I have a little though it is already disappearing.  I was a bit nervous beforehand but won't be when we are called the second time.  She did say that we might have three days of discomfort with that one, slight fever, tiredness, etc. but I won't hesitate.  Just glad the process has started.  Several of our family and friends have had the full dose, others are still waiting.  We thought we would be too.  Now onto this month's trivia questions.


Which U.S. City is known as the City of Brotherly Love?  


Ludwig Van Beethoven was born in 1770 in which city?


What is the most expensive home in the world?


Which mammal has no vocal cords?


What type of music has been known to help plants grow faster?


What is the rarest M & M color?



Thanks for stopping by.  There will be another quiz next month.  Answers to this one tomorrow.  

Have a great day!

  1. We had the same experience getting our vaccines that you both did. Oh my, I always only seem to know the answer to one of the questions! Plants love classical music. If you play them heavy metal, they will get sick and die.

    1. Hi Ginny, so glad you got your vaccines. Knowing that plants grow with music makes me smile. It tells me that every living thing, plants included, we are all connected. I personally love classical music but never have been a fan of heavy metal. As the old saying goes, 'twud' be a boring old world if we liked the same things.

  2. The only ones I thought I knew were the plant music and the M&M color. The M&M I knew because Alexa asked it for Question of the Day.

  5. So glad you got your first dose! I know the first one is Philly, I believe it's jazz that makes plants grow faster, and the rarest M&M color is brown. No clue on the rest.

  8. Ludwig van Beethoven was born in Bonn.
    Vaccination in Poland is slow and many people are afraid of side effects.
    Lots of health :)

  12. Fun questions today, Denise. These make me feel better than most of your quizzes.
    I'm so happy to hear you both have had your first dose. We have had both doses now, and I can't tell you how thrilled we are! At our hospital the process went so smoothly as well. I hope we have herd immunity before long.
